I have seen this bowl for sale and admired it for literally about two years...and when it was suddenly very much discounted last week, I grabbed it! :) It just arrived today, and I am excited to share it. I have suspected for a long time that this bowl may have been made by Kralik, based on the 'punched' type of handles, as well as the overall bowl shape - it is about 10" across by 8" wide. I love the organic form of this piece. Anyway, I have always called it 'the cabbage leaf' in my head, and showed pictures of it to a friend a few days ago. I have to thank them, since they said it reminded them very much of Kralik's 'Gloria' decor, but without the applied glass petals. I then looked at quite a few Kralik 'Gloria' examples, and do agree that they have a lot of similarities. Does anyone else think it could be a 'Gloria' variant?
